Ha! You have no idea how many were already IN the shop.
I’m sure I have at least 50 matching hub housings, so the trailer axle idea COULD work. But considering I paid the outfit that build the six lug axle for my camping trailer $125.00, ...
I moved another 54 yesterday. That’s ALMOST all of them.
Yeah, you don't need any more. Based on my sales history that is about 54 years worth of drum brake spindles
My thoughts were along the lines of also having locking hubs on the spindles. That way you can park the trailer, lock the hubs (to lock the wheels) and the trailer stays put with no chocks. Plus the matching bolt pattern and adding value to otherwise "valueless" parts. Probably as much for the "cool factor" as the practicality. And I would expect to pay a little more for something like that vs. a standard trailer axle. I kept at least one set of drum brake knuckles around to try out my ideas in real life; I just have not gotten to the part of the project list.
Oh yeah, I had also planned on doing the axle like a portal axle so the beam is above the centerline of the wheels - for more trail clearance.
